Making changes

Here, to the left, you can see a Cestrum 'auraniacum' that I'd planted to fill the corner and block the base of the honeysuckle and jasmine vines. It worked a little too well, and took over, but it was all leaves and produced so few flowers I finally pulled it last week and planted a Brugmansia 'Charles Grimaldi' in it's place. I was shocked at the difference at pulling it out, but I've also lost all the flowers visible here from the Anigozanthos (2 one red one yellow) and the Asclepias curassavica (scarlet milkweed). I'm looking forward to training the Brugmansia.
